About this property

  • Set in this semi-rural location on the edge of Crowborough, Little Whinfell is an attractive and well-presented four bedroom family home, providing flexible accommodation with sizeable gardens that have been thoughtfully landscaped and designed and lovingly maintained over the years.

    Arranged over two floors, the ground floor accommodation comprises a kitchen/breakfast room, utility room, and three reception rooms, together with a single bedroom with en suite shower room.

    The sitting room, fitted with a log burner with attractive limestone surround, has French doors that open directly onto to the gardens; the adjoining snug with glazed doors provides the option to open/close this room off from the sitting room whenever required, ideal when entertaining on a larger scale.

    The kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with solid wood shaker-style units, oak worktops, and a four-door AGA with ample space for a dining table. The dining room offers a more formal area for entertaining if required. The separate utility room has good storage and sink along with space for both a washer and dryer. The single bedroom with an en suite, can be used to suit, as overflow accommodation or alternatively as a study/home office ideal for today's working-from-home needs. The large galleried landing also offers an alternative area for a reading/work space if required.

    The first floor is home to the dual aspect principal bedroom overlooking the gardens below, with en suite shower room. There are two further double bedrooms, one with fitted wardrobes, and a family bathroom.

    The mature gardens at Little Whinfell are of particular note, with a variety of different areas to enjoy. A large paved terrace adjoins the house, perfect for al fresco dining, there is a formal rose garden planted with David Austin roses, both a breeze house and log cabin (fitted with power ideal for an office space) to retreat to, a pergola with an established clematis, a level area of lawn, formerly the tennis court to neighbouring Whinfell, and a wide range of specimen plants including a wisteria, a climbing hydrangea, apple trees, fig trees, acers and azaleas. There is also a convenient gardeners privvy accessed directly from the garden.

    To the front of Little Whinfell, the gated, gravel driveway provides parking for several cars, along with a double oak barn with lockable storage area, and herbaceous borders sweeping around to the front entrance.

I was so impressed by the gardens that our clients have lovingly maintained and created here, but if green fingers aren't your thing the golf course is but moments away. Gardening or golf?! The choice is yours!
